Lake Fortress (湖の砦; Mizuumi no Toride) is a location in Genso Suikoden: The Woven Web of a Century.


It's an old fortress built on an island in the middle of an unnamed lake, close to Telbe Village. In the Telluspharma Interception War 100 years ago, it was used as a base by the hero Torwald Albarek and his friends. The history prior to it is unknown. After the war ended, it was left abandoned and become the playground of small monsters in the area.

When Hero and Myura went to the past and met Torwald, they informed that the fortress is in a dilapidated state. This seems to have given him the idea to maintain the fortress's condition so it could be used by his descendants. When Hero returned to the future after this meeting, he and Myura found the fortress in good condition. They discovered that it is actually being used by trainees from Telbe Village, with Lulusa maintaining a kitchen there and Gino using one of the buildings as his workshop.


Main Building

Here the player can see a list of monsters that had been fought in Bestiary, listen to some of the music, watch movie scenes of past events, and once it has been obtained, view the Stars of Destiny on the Tablet of Star0.

Dining Hall

Upon entering HQ, the time will be set to evening and player won't be able to leave before having dinner and resting. Four chefs are in charge of this dining hall: Lulusa, Bjorn, Scharf, and Numistro. The player can choose which dish to be served for dinner and, after recruiting more than six playable members, can choose which characters to have dinner together. There are several choices including dining with your party members or dining with members you don't often interact with. You can only dine with people who can be added to your party.

Each of the meals available has a different effect. Some give stat boosts to those who participate in dinner, others increase the Friendship Level, and some do both. Increasing the friendship level between party members allows for better teamwork during battle, which consequently results in increasing attack damages and speeds. When relationships are maxed between certain characters, some characters will be able to learn a second class.

There are also several events that can be triggered when putting particular characters together for dinner. Some can be accessed due to story progression and some for having the relationship between them increased a level (for example, from Normal to Good).


A general store managed by Utze is located on the right side of the entrance of the fortress. The items available are updated as the story progresses and player reaches a location that sells new items. The prices are the same as any other stores, despite Utze's claim that he sells it cheaper for Hero's army. As this is a general store, the items sold here only consist of materials that can be used in workshops. The player needs to go to other towns to buy equipment, healing items, and cooking ingredients.

Tree of Ages

The first Tree of Ages that Hero can use is located here. It is connected to the Lake Fortress of 100 years ago. There the player can meet Torwald, Rolph, Gerrell, and Ingolf (after he passes his skill to Gino).



  • Hunting: managed by Luceri. You can fight battles and win prizes (and experience).
  • Dungeon: managed by Gino. You can trap monsters there for money and items. Completing each of the dungeons can give you some of the strongest items in the game.


  • The fortress is referred to as Lake Fortress due to its location.
  • As per Suikoden tradition, the player can give it a name at the same time they have to choose the army's name. It doesn't change anything in the game though.
  • Unlike in previous installments, you cannot explore the headquarters (or any other town in this game). You will navigate to the locations by using your controller or pulling up the list of available locations. However, you can freely explore the location before it is your headquarters and when you visit it in the past.
